Linger His jumping won it for him. He jumped brilliantly. He's a little horse that I bought for small money at Ascot. He was a Darley cast off and only cost £1,800. He had a very good run on the Flat first time and he'll mix it between Flat and hurdles. He has to have good ground. He might go for the winners of one at Listowel. He's only handy but he has a lot of heart. The syndicate are from Athlone and have been with me since the start. It's great to have a little horse to do the job for them. He worked well at the Curragh the other morning and I told them all to come today.

Black Sam The Man That's lovely. He's been knocking on the door,. It's great for the Kelly family as he was bought for their father (Patrick) who passed away a couple of months ago. I'm delighted to get a win out of the horse as he had horses with me for the last couple of years and was an out-and-out gentleman. Danny said he wants that trip and he has to have good ground. The last day in Tipperary they over-watered. He's no star but if we get a 3m2f somewhere he'll have a chance again.

Camlann He's run three times here this week. The first day was my fault as I didn't put the hood on him, and his next run on the Flat he just didn't get a clear run at the right time. He's a galloper and stays well,. I'm delighted for the Mee family and for myself but especially Rachael Blackmore as she has been knocking on the door all week (second on Supreme Vinnie yesterday as well) and that means a lot to her. He's a very genuine horse and will get a month off now.
